love, life, and the pursuit of liberation
My dear friend CD stays inspiring me. She doesn’t always know it, but she is embodying yesterday’s quote that as you are given gifts, it’s the intention that you share it with the world. Following her example of being grateful, this is what I’m grateful for today:
I am grateful for the MANY, MANY winks and all out SHOUTS that God is giving me about writing career. In the past few days, I’ve been connected to people, prospective clients, exemplars, and sermons that confirm my dreams.
I am grateful for new mornings. Last night was particularly rough, and I was having a full-blown pity party. I woke up this morning groggy and kind of pissed that I scheduled a meeting before my normal work day (I’m spoiled that I don’t have to officially start at 9am). But the meeting went very well because it was with my favorite clients and it was enough of an ego stroke to put me in a much better frame of mind.
I am grateful for Divine timing. I can be very impatient and have often lamented to God about not having what I want NOW. At the same time, I’ve been afraid of the things s/he is giving me right now and wonder if I’m ready. I’m learning to embrace Divine timing because it has NEVER been wrong, even when I couldn’t see it in the moment.
I hope you are inspired to be grateful today!
